Really? (Goes to show how much I know.) So, dumb question I'm sure, but were there particular tunes that were always TC and other ones that were always Pig (on keyboard)?

TC and me several days ago - what was your TC question?

Nice! Well, I guess I'd have several.

1) What do you think of Scientology now?

2) Your hair is great. Do you ever look in the mirror in the morning and think, "Geez I'd look like your basic old geezer with a haircut. I'm so glad I look like some old shaman instead"?

3) Tell me your favorite Grateful Dead story. Except that he'd probably be (a) sick of doing that, and (b) wouldn't talk to me after the first two questions.

Seriously, Monte, that's very cool.

I thought TC played on all tunes when he was there. This is the first I've heard that Pig still played on some like DDHNM. Ghostofpig would know, but that's a bit of lost history there!

They did have two organs briefly - both played for a few shows in fall '68 after TC joined, and apparently for a few shows later in fall '69.

cf. liner notes, LIVE/DEAD. I guess they preferred his blues sound. Pig also played on several post 68 Alligators.

Hmm, you're right. Another Pigpen performance hiding in plain sight!
That DDHNM came from 3/2/69... I wonder if, every time they played it, TC stepped aside & Pigpen played? It warrants more investigation...

Everytime I saw it--which wasn't that often as they usually ended with Lovelight. I think the concept was to ensure that the evening ended with Pig onstage one way or another.
